IFTTT: https://ifttt.com/ What can I [Lyanca] say, if you aren’t using this super fun tool great for posting from Instagram as a picture to your twitter account. Why not?!?! Also, you can you use IFTTT outside of social media for things like generating an Evernote memo directly from your email. It is even rumored that IFTTT is even surpassing Google Alerts by providing more real-time topic centric notifications. This is Lyanca’s personal favorite IFTTT recipe “If You Get a New Follower On Twitter, Then [IFTTT] Sends A Thank You Tweet to The New Follow”

Webinar Jam AND Ever Webinar: http://dealguardian.net/product/3859/?hop=LyancaReyna&page=default/ OK, real talk here, while I [Lyanca] was trying still trying to be a lame tiny business owner, I tried to avoid “paying” for a webinar service that I thought that I could good get for free. The truth is, I wasted tons of time and money by not choosing to go with the Webinar Jam AND Ever Webinar. After I tried to create my own marketing auto responders to make sure people could easily attend our Webinars. I realized I would have saved toooooons of time and grief by simplicity choosing the simplicity of Webinar Jams’ Integration Options with Infusionsoft and Leadpages. I also realized after “researching” [trial and failing] the market several times, Ever Webinar was the only true option currently on the market that helped to both increase attendee registrations and decrease “no show’ rates. Of course, with the 30 day money back guarantee, you would have to test these webinar solutions out for yourself.

Podomatic: www.podomatic.com When we started our podcast less than a year ago we had no idea we would reach tens of thousands of people every Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday LIVE each day for almost 12 weeks and create it all in less than 7-weeks!!! While we are uber grateful for the immediate, whirlwind success we were also grateful that Podomatic made it uber easy to simply upload one graphic and one Mp3 to simultaneously distribute to ITunes, Sticher, and Spreaker…and it was free!
Web Development and Design:
Carole Magourik http://carolemagouirk.com/ OMG…this Chica is light years beyond the rest of any competition and is very professional and super easy to work with. I think her laidback Austin style is super fresh, hip & hot. However, I believe that fact that Carole understands the speaker, affiliate, & tele-speaker business is the true bonus in working with Carole. She is a smart cookie yet very modest. I recommend just book a time to chat with her so you can see for yourself.
